sketches


Wow, it's already Wednesday! :/  I have a big craft fair coming up this Friday, and if I told you that I don't have all that I wanted to sell, would you be surprised?  Well, I don't.  I could use another day off from work, and my husband to play another night of ice hockey.
But, anyways, lets get back to the subject at hand.  The wonderfully talented ladies over @ Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge, has a fabulous sketch.  And the thing I love about this sketch, is we all saw it differently.  There are some fall themed cards, and of course Christmas.  But, please check out what the other ladies on the design team have done.  Very talented, and very creative.  You will be inspired!
If you are new to my blog, I have a tendency to interpret the sketch differently than most  So, without sounding  like a crazy person, or super un-organized, lets get to the sketch.

Here is  the sketch: (week 12)



Here is my card: (Christmas, of course.)




Ok, before you point out to me that the three shapes along the right side of the sketch are uniform...let me just say that I saw three shapes.  
The best part about this sketch is just that.  3 shapes.  Think, any shape.  Don't limit yourself to the flower shape in the sketch.  Think snowflakes, leaves, ornaments, or miss mash - like me!
Ok, now for the large oval that is off centered.  Don't limit yourself to that skinny, long oval.  I didn't.  You could use a rectangle, instead.   Aren't the possibilities starting to surface?




For my card I used three different stamp sets, two different DSP's, 2 punches, 2 dies, 3 embellishments, an ink pad and a variety of markers.



Thanks for stopping by.  Play along with us this week.  but remember, you must use your Stampin' Up! supplies/products.
